"Primitive Future" as written by Igor Cavalera, Massimiliano A. Cavalera, Andreas Rudolf Kisser and Paulo Xisto Jr. Pinto....
I follow the steps I see in front of me
They are deep and well-defined
They show an undefined but straight path
What has gone through me will never return
Future won't let me look back

I just walk, I don't evolve, I just walk
Animals run by my side
They try to communicate, each one in its own way
But I can't understand

I feel alone on this irrational planet
To create or just observe
I keep walking on this desert made of ideas
Primitive future

My head is heavy but empty
Everything around me is void, without movement
Without perspectives
The night invades the sky
That darkens the dry ground

Making my shadow join the big stain that's forming
My steps become slow and agonize
I step on skulls of generations that have not formed
I hear painful cries of wars that are to come

To create everything again, from the beginning
To teach new minds
To awake a sleeping giant buried
On the ashes of disgrace

It's scornful the way I live
I look well, I think I'm well
That's all

I follow the steps I see in front of me
They are deep and well-defined
They show an undefined but straight path
What has gone through me will never return
Primitive future

    General CommentGreat ending song! It's very *epic* and important to me! Sepultura kicks your face!

    "I Follow The Steps I See In Front Of Me
    They Are Deep And Well-defined
    They Show An Undefined But Straight Path
    What Has Gone Through Me Will Never Return"

    Tells you to look at things of what humanity had previously discovered to be well-tried. There are already society approved ways of examples for living, that you don't have to endlessly repeat your mistakes in a circle.
    "What Has Gone Through Me Will Never Return" means that you'll never be the quite same after everything you go through in lifetime.

    "Future Won't Let Me Look Back"
    Means that you need sometimes cut the crap out of self pity if want get better

    "I Just Walk, I Don't Evolve, I Just Walk"
    You are you and cannot be changed that easily.

    "Animals Run By My Side
    They Try To Communicate, Each One In Its Own Way"
    Means no one does it in absolute right way, just like you.

    "But I Can't Understand
    I Feel Alone On This Irrational Planet
    To Create Or Just Observe
    I Keep Walking On This Desert Made Of Ideas"
    "My Head Is Heavy But Empty ..."

    You may still look the world as an old place and numb.

    "I Step On Skulls Of Generations That Have Not Formed
    I Hear Painful Cries Of Wars That Are To Come
    To Create Everything Again, From The Beginning
    To Teach New Minds
    To Awake A Sleeping Giant Buried"

    There's a new sucker born every minute and going hardships like you and need guidance.

    "On The Ashes Of Disgrace
    It's Scornful The Way I Live
    I Look Well, I Think I'm Well
    That's All..."

    It may have a contradictory sound to it, but basicly it tells you to say "FUCK IT" to your faults you have. In the end all that matters is your health and happiness and how you really want to live.

    And finally..

    "Primitive Future"
    I guess it means you'll maybe have little more simplistic point of view about world as you realize your needs and goals.


    Damn that was long, but it was worth it! Hail Sepultura!
